Love one another and help others to rise to the higher levels, simply by pouring out love. Love is infectious and the greatest healing energy.

~ Sathya Sai Baba




Hello Everyone,

In these times of conflict and change, it is not difficult to feel overwhelmed, worried or even anxious about the future. Political and social upheaval happening here in the United States is in full swing with emotions running the full gamut. As lightworkers, we can know without a doubt that the higher energies and codes of consciousness streaming to planet earth are bringing about the awakening of humanity, and far-reaching transformation is at hand for us all on a personal and collective level.

With so many challenges around us in every sphere of influence, perhaps you may be asking where is the Magic? Is there a way for us to build a better future? Can we ease the suffering of humanity? Pain, whether emotional, physical or of an intellectual nature, gets our attention. What we feel uneasy about or uncomfortable with, we must address and the squeaky wheel will get the oil. Now more than ever we must speak out against wrongdoing and take action to bring about change for the betterment of everyone. Is this not the purpose of our being here? It all begins with loving the self.

Healing from some neuralgia pain of late, I have had my own personal lessons of transformation as my neural system is being rewired and I release the past. I can attest first-hand that when irrascibility, irritabilty, anger and frustration are triggered they must be released, or they will fester. Such emotions and feelings within us are a signal that there is something to be looked at, but not at the expense of another. Our job is to remain in a loving space, loving ourselves first. This is an important step of our personal Magic.

Here in the United States, in the aftermath of the Charlottesville protest, violent exchange and a death, we witness how the very best and worst in humanity is always present. Staying in a place of love, without judgment of another, is challenging in the face of racism and extreme provocation. Yet this is the level of consciousness being asked of us: to be loving and peaceful, come what may. It is helpful to remember that no-one is perfect and to always be kind; you know not what a person may have gone through or is going through. Unfailingly in these times, everything is coming out into the light of day to be seen by us all. Nothing can be hidden anymore and, I believe, this is a good thing.

A new book entitled Never Caught: The Washingtons’ Relentless Pursuit of Their Runaway Slave, Ona Judge, by Erica Armstrong Dunbar, has just been published, in which she tells the story of the mixed-race slave who escaped her indenture to President George Washington, one of the founding fathers of America. In his era, he became a slave owner at the age of 11; however, in his life and journey, his views did a complete turnaround and despite his role as a slave owner, the indenture of slaves ultimately became “an unavoidable subject of regret” for him. We all have the right to evolve at our own pace.

Perhaps the idiom “no gain without pain” particularly holds true at present, in light of current events and what is being revealed. All our thoughts and beliefs contribute to the whole of mass consciousness. What has heretofore been ignored, or swept under the carpet, is ceding to transparency and the microscopic eye of the media. No-one should be overlooked or marginalized. Overcoming injustice and persevering to right the wrongs of the past (and present) requires dedication. Each of us is contributing to the new understanding and better way of life for humanity in our own way.

I recently heard Greg Fischer, the Mayor of Louisville, Kentucky, reply to the question as to what did he attribute his successful transformative changes to the city that are coming about in terms of employment, education and living standards. He spoke of

the necessity to apply both head and heart.

(HURRAY, HURRAY!) He obviously is applying some universal magic to his leadership role there!

Perhaps the greatest step of Magic is learning to trust in the unseen forces that are at work in the Universe, or put another way, understanding that Love is the guiding force of All There Is. Trusting that you are being guided and helped along the way for your highest good is vital. Learning to listen to the wisdom of your heart from your own divine I AM Presence, or God Self, will take you where you need to go. There is a voice of love and reason within us all; this is Magic in and of itself.  May it cast its spell over our lives to bring about the dreams of our hearts given us individually and uniquely by the Source of All. If we can function from a place of mutual love and respect for all, I do believe The New Camelot will come about.

Love and Blessings,
